been opposed to having a bridge [speaker not understood] took a lot of effort to get this done. thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker. and let me ask if there are any other members of the public that wish to speak in public comment, please step up. you can if youth up on the projector. i realize that i'm not compelled to be here. you probably would rather i'm not here. but there is a scripture where jesus mentioned that you would be brought before governors and kings for his name's sake and they will turn to you for a testimony against them. and not to worry about what you're going to say because it will be given in that hour what to speak. your father will speak through you. and today i believe the lord would have me talk about a young man that came to christ, the rich young ruler and he knelt down before him. he ran to him and he knelt down before him and he said, what good thing shall i do to obtain
eternal life? and jesus said, you know the commandments. don't commit adultery, don't steal, don't lie, honor your mother and father. and he listed several of them. and the man could say with a clear conscience, i've done these from my youth. so, he he was better than many. but jesus used the law lawfully there, trying to get him under conviction. and he -- because he was could covetous, he put his finger on sin, he always does that. one thing you lack. sell everything you have give to the poor and follow me. he went away sad. later on he did get saved because the bible said jesus loved him and that means he got saved. jacob have i loved, esau have i hated. [speaker not understood]. he he didn't get saved at that particular juncture. but the greatest argument i could give for this text -- let me put it this way.
i should have prepared my thoughts. christ was not saying that you can go to heaven by keeping the commandments. it appeared like that because he told him to keep the commandments. the commandments are good, okay. but the commandments can't save you because peter said after christ said that it's ease 'for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to did to heaven. he he said who can be said, jesus said it is impossible. >> thank you. are there any other members of the public that wish to speak in public comment? yes, my name is larry, i stay in district 6. i want to show you something. the women here have been great today. it seems like they're talking about housing and violence, something that i would love to see some of county, the board of supervisors, the mayor, we all come and make san francisco
a zero tolerance. we can report it, nothing is unreported. too much is not being reported. what i want to show you what's going on, if i could [inaudible]. this is what i call my black man's [speaker not understood]. it's got all the people's faces [speaker not understood]. [speaker not understood]. to be black and gay in america thanks to jason collins and michael, [speaker not understood]. but the idea that when i look, someone had come in my room and tied a noose, this is a noose. the day before i found [speaker not understood] on the floor. this is the lgbt historical day african-american complex. i live in s-r-o with disability people. people are in and out of the room when we're not there. a black man would never tie a noose and have it in his room.
so, this is what i said the morning before. i want to see [speaker not understood] at holiday plaza. the best [speaker not understood] in san francisco. but what i'm finding also is that we need [speaker not understood] the church i belong to, we need for them to be part of the new [speaker not understood] because i understand cnbc is taking over that apartment complex and i found out sunday that delta church built freedom west up from ground. they need to be there so i won't get noosed in my room on the cnbc apartment. and i want you to take this serious. it is one week old now and i've been wearing it. new york times did an article on me at glide church sunday. so, thank you. [inaudible]. >> thank you very much. are there any other members of the public that wish to speak in general public comment? please step up.
